The book forms the Proceedings of the 5th International Symposium on Tubular Structures, following previous events in Boston (1984), Tokyo (1986), Finland (1989), Delft (1991). Sponsored by British Steel, International Institute of Welding and CIDECT, it forms an important forum for advanced structural research and development.
"…invaluable. It provides not only a comprehensive current review of knowledge on many aspects of tubular structures but also information on who is doing what kind of work currently." - Canadian Journal of Civil Engineering
